What patients are saying

Dr. Wheeler is a very sweet, caring doctor. He cares about his patients and is very polite. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor to take care of me. I would tell everyone to go to him because unlike most doctors, Dr. Wheeler does his job and does it right. I can't thank him enough for the kindness and caring of people he helps. Thank you so much.

Dr. Wheeler has an excellent “bedside manner” in addition to being a great doctor.
